So like you I'd rather meet in the "real world" but apparently we have yet to bump into each other in the same coffee shop or bar, you don't work out at the same Bally's, and any mutual friends we share are too inept or self centered to think about setting us up.
**love dogs or you are not appalled by people that treat their dogs like members of the family. (I lost mine a little while ago so this is no longer mandatory.)
**Try to keep an open mind and are NOT someone who will argue your point to death with strangers, but secretly want to strangle ultra conservative Republicans while being polite and easy going with them.
**Watch no more than 2 reality shows religiously
**Have a good balance between work and fun but would sooner cancel a work appointment than plans to go with friends to Taste of Chicago.
**Have less baggage than O'Hare or even Midway on a slow day but you've experienced life -- had your share of ups and downs, triumphs and struggles, and are stronger for it.
**Live in the city, reasonably close or come down frequently.
I have no pre-conceived idea of who my soul mate should be,... I trust fate's judgment more than my own. So, if this doesn't describe you but you get a good vibe please write.
I'm hoping to start a long-term relationship but don't go into each and every date with a check list trying to figure out if this is "the one."
I have my own advertising business. I sell the ad space; I don't do the design work. Well on occasion I do. My business requires a bit of explanation. It's a unique niche.
I'm also a musician, and I've been aggressively trying to promote my album Next Exit... Brigadoon. I'll do some right now -- it's available at the typical online retailers and itunes as well as Barnes and Noble and some big box stores. Currently, I'm just living one day at a time. Ten years from now everything might be different. I'm not averse to change.
movies = Godfather 1 and 2, Woody Allen prior to the mid nineties, Jacob's Ladder, The Believer, Short Cuts, Hitchcock stuff, Being John Malkovich, American Beauty, Citizen Kane, Spinal Tap, Do the Right Thing, just the ones that popped in my head.
music = I'm a musician but I honestly don't have very eclectic taste in music. Springsteen and Dylan are my 2 biggest influences as a songwriter.
food = Lou Malnati's Pizza, anything unusual or ethnic, Wisconsin State Fair creme puffs, pink champagne cake (you probably never heard of it)
2) A few good friends / family
3) Diet Fresca -- I drink gallons of it.
4) A car -- I don't know how anyone deals with public transportation 100% of the time.
5) A shower with great water pressure.
honorary mention to.....
a guitar, internet, phone, in unit laundry, and spell check.
